Saw the sign while walking about town. Great way to hear authentic Irish music especially if you need a break from the pub. Wonderful medieval church with great history. Includes a tour of church. Great time!

We decided to go see the Tunes in the Church our first night in Galway, and this was a great idea. It's a small, intimate way to take in the local music without having to fight a crowd, and afterwards, you can go to any...More

The old church was a perfect venue for the old, traditional music. The acoustics are superb and the three performers charismatic and talented. It was a welcome change from pub music and atmosphere. The one negative is that information is hard to obtain so here...More
